“Stand up and face the enemy… we will be invincible.” ~ Pat Benatar

So many of us face obstacles every day. A few weeks ago, a dear friend of mine (a kindred spirit, fellow writer, sister of my soul) suffered a stroke. I know that she will overcome the struggles she’s facing right now because she’s a fighter, and she’s a bad-ass in so many ways. In chatting with her, I have found that she is ta...

I love red hood with a great passion. And like many fans I was skeptical as to how he would team up with these new Misfits. But lobdell made it work. I'm very impressed.

What I don't understand though, and haven't understood in all the rebirth issues

Love this team. It might be my fault because I think I skipped a volume, but I find this story just a little disjointed. I love all the elements, though.

I'm a fan of breaking the mold with paneling, but here I had trouble following the panels someti

"I'll sum this story up quickly:

Her: I want a man to dominate me!
Him: You don't know what you want. You're just playing games.
Her: OMG, you're right! I am! What's wrong with me?!
Him: Wait. What?

Tiffany Reisz is a really, really good writer. Don't let the category of these books fool you into thinking it's fluff - it's not.

My one complaint is that the characters are complete and transparent archetypes. It's so obvious that I can only think

Thrilling, gripping, great perspective on broken shiny dreams. But I still have trouble with Hillman's pacing. Too much important is thrown in and out, resolved too quickly or not at all. The skeleton story of amnesia and drugs to remove or engage it ...more

Virginia Woolf
“Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.”
Virginia Woolf

Neil Gaiman
“You don't get heaven or hell. Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to be Batman.”
Neil Gaiman, Batman: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?

Kay Redfield Jamison
“I decided early in graduate school that I needed to do something about my moods. It quickly came down to a choice between seeing a psychiatrist or buying a horse. Since almost everyone I knew was seeing a psychiatrist, and since I had an absolute belief that I should be able to handle my own problems, I naturally bought a horse.”
Kay Redfield Jamison, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness

Kay Redfield Jamison
“The rites of passage in the academic world are arcane and, in their own way, highly romantic, and the tensions and unplesantries of dissertations and final oral examinations are quickly forgotten in the wonderful moment of the sherry afterward, admission into a very old club, parties of celebration, doctoral gowns, academic rituals, and hearing for the first time "Dr.," rather than "Miss" Jamison.”
Kay Redfield Jamison, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness

Grant Morrison
“Because it all derived from Superman. I mean, I love all the characters, but Superman is just this perfect human pop-culture distillation of a really basic idea. He's a good guy. He loves us. He will not stop in defending us. How beautiful is that? He's like a sci-fi Jesus. He'll never let you down. And only in fiction can that guy actually exist, because real guys will always let you down one way or another. We actually made up an idea that beautiful. That's just cool to me. We made a little paper universe where all of the above is true.”
Grant Morrison

Gabriela thanks for turning me onto this site, mish. i've obviously been a little busy trying to think of the books i've read in the past few years. very fun. i read a lot! :) anyways, i can't wait to start browsing your suggestions and others' to find my next 'good read.' i'm rereading 'the fountainhead' now and that'll keep me busy for a bit but the stuff on my shelf doesn't really entice me. i'm going to have to find a copy of 'mists' soon so we can chat about arthurian stuff! any fodder for our assignments on here?

Stephanie Hey! Thanks for the invite! Maybe I'll actually be motivated to start reading my stacks of books!
